Damian Kingsley: ‘I’ve learned to be a lot less cynical’
Damian Kingsley

After completing a 120-night penniless tour of the UK, Damian Kingsley hitches a lift in the WOW Wagon to tell us what he learned

Kingsley has been touring the United Kingdom, from Land’s End to Edinburgh, with no access to money. All in the name of fundraising for homeless charity Shelter.

The stand-up has been relying on the kindness of strangers for food, travel and accommodation for the space of three months and had been blogging on the experience for us when he could.

To mark the end stop of his audacious trip, Kingsley stopped by the WOW Wagon to talk about what he’s learned, the difficulties he faced and whether he would do it all again.
